I'm going to jump into this exchange between George and Jack for just
a moment to expand the above thought a little. A sub-assumption of
the Qumran-DSS-Essene theory is that the sect wrote and/or copied the
scrolls. With that sub-assumption, Jack's analogy using the
diversity of his own library tends to break down. Gathering books on
various and diverse subjects, some agreed-with, some not, is quite a
different activity than acting as a scribe and laboriously cranking
out handwritten copies of them.
